STJ Soccer Player Sees World Cup Games

Team USA, trying to once again live out its dream of winning Women’s World Cup soccer.
While the Americans are busy doing that on the pitch, a St. Joe soccer player is busy watching their games in person. Jillian Robles, Lady Flyer goalkeeper, is in France and has been at two of team USA’s games so far in this year’s tournament. Jillian has watched two U.S. wins as they move into the quarterfinals. I talked with Jillian by phone from Paris Thursday afternoon to find out what it’s been like to watch these huge games all over France.

“It’s been really exciting. The atmosphere’s been really good here. Everyone’s really pumped up, especially for the big game against France tomorrow. It’s just been really exciting to get to watch all the games in person.”

Team USA takes on France in the Women’s World Cup quarterfinals. It can be seen on Fox 19 Friday afternoon at 2:00.
